Lives of the Saints
Truly how interesting are the lives of the saints! They amaze us with
their holiness and miracles. Let them be an inspiration and model for our
St. Anthony Mary Claret Feast October 23 - Vowing never
to waste a moment of time, St. Anthony wrote over 144 books and gave over 25,000 sermons
in 35 years as a priest. He also worked many miracles, some of which are included
in this story.
St. Vincent Ferrer Feast April 5 - He converted whole
synagogues of Jews with a single sermon, raised persons from the dead,
and was frequently required to pause in his sermons because of the weeping
and sobbing of the listeners. Read the story of this great saint!

million souls in just ten years.
St. John Marie Vianney Feast August 8
- Satan told
this saint that if there were two others like him on earth at that time, his
(Satan's) kingdom would be dissolved.
Saint Padre Pio - This article on Padre Pio presents the most
interesting lessons to be learned from his life, and the practical applications that could transform
our own. Included are some of his miraculous conversions and healings. This
article also relates how he opposed the spirit of change that motivated
Vatican II and continued to celebrate only the traditional Latin Mass.
- St. Germaine Feast June 15
- Crippled and abused,
St. Germaine did not rebel against society, but rather became a Saint.
What a wonderful example she is to those of us who think that the rigors
of every day life make it impossible to attain a high state of perfection.
St. Maria Goretti Feast July 6 - The purity of this
young girl is an example to us all. Like her, we must choose death rather than sin.
- St. Valentine Feast February 14

we celebrate Valentine's Day. Like most holidays, it has Catholic roots.

many miracles this great saint performed when converting the entire country of Ireland to
the Faith in the 5th century.
- St. Benedict Feast March 21 & July 11
of Nursia (480-543), "Father of Western Monasticism" and founder of the Benedictine Order. All
Catholics should know about St. Benedict's life and miracles. He is still today a powerful
protector in dangers to soul or body, and is a Saint to invoke in every sort of necessity.
